THIS IS NOT COOL:

NOT COOL PARIS!

NOT COOL PARIS!

If you agree, join Steve Lamacq’s rebellion against these fakers and wear your old band T-Shirt to work on WEAR YOUR OLD BAND T-SHIRT TO WORK DAY – this Thursday – 4th December 2008 – GET INVOLVED!

For too long we have stood aside and watched in silence as so called ‘It Girls’ have paraded around LA and London in Led Zeppelin and Ramones T-shirts – attempting to purchase some credibility but in turn suggesting that the band shirt is nothing more than a fashion accessory.

But no longer! We say dig out your T-shirts and be proud! Show them we care who we wear on our chests; and that we are not going to stand idly by as they undermine the lost art of showing people “we were there at the Brixton Academy in 1998” or “we travelled all the way to Wolverhampton on a Tuesday in November and still have the shirt to prove it.”

Check the BBC 6 Music Site for more details.

Our new stationery arrived recently, but we couldn’t see such things of beauty merely tossed aside after the original purpose we attached to them was fulfilled…

So we provided everyone with the instructions to turn the letterhead into beautiful flowers with which to adorn their workspace… Gala got busy with some in the studio and made a wonderful display I’m sure you’ll agree…

Very soon Gala will also be the star of a series of tutorials, right here on the blog, to show you how to make your own, but in the meantime why not call us or pop by and we might pass on a sheet or two if you ask nicely, you might get the full set if you comission some work ;0)

We’ve been getting even more creative in our evenings recently… The team have been staying back after normal studio hours to do some self-initiated work. Watch this space for the finished beauty, but for now here’s a sneaky peak of what’s been going on…

Pedestrian’s big birthday bash suddenly feels more ‘proper’!

We’ve just finished the cheapo, generic in-yer face mono posters in true chip-shop style – every self-respecting D&B night needs one!

They’re really poor but we’re strangely proud – it feel’s like it’s a proper night now – we feel dirty!

As Posted a few weeks ago, the time has come for us to fly the protective nest of the LCB Depot to our lovely new spanking loft of a studio in the heart of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter.

Our new address will be 33 Yeoman Street, Leicester, LE1 1UT and as soon as we have more details about phone numbers, we’ll be contacting everyone and changing the details on the sites and here on the blog.

Thought you might like to see the chaos in progress… ;0)

Boxes ready to go...
